Day 280 Hogmanay🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 (NYE) 2020 and the year that brought us COVID-19 is nearly at an end….

🤦🏻‍♀️🤣 actually I lie as I have my clean jammies on, hair washed and a wee bit of make up tonight…. check me! Obviously no plans to go anywhere as we all have to stay home tonight due to level 4 COVID restrictions in place. It will be a different to previous years but we’re both looking forward to a quiet night together with the dogs, in front of the fire with the candles on.

And memories of Hogmanay 2013 we had the best night up in Oban out on the pier with Face the West headlining. Pre doggy days obviously! Also check out the baby boy beard… think that’s the year it started?!?!
This is our Hogmanay 2020

I slept like a log last night. About time I have to say…..there was no head chatter going on.

We had a great night out at the fire pit yesterday. The moon was stunning…. we played tunes and watched the fire.

It was almost daylight
The Cold Moon of 2020
These pics are all the moon in the dark!!
Close up of an old log we’ve had in the garden for about 5 years!

So it was about 10am before I was up and moving today and we had to get to the supermarket. Straight to Tesco in Kilbirnie which was pretty mobbed though we got straight in and out pretty quickly. They operate the traffic light system now so when the light is green you can go in. It did seem a lot busier than I expected though. It’s our first time out since Christmas Eve! Life in the level 4 fast lane huh…. 🤣

We then had Pawsitive Solutions work to do so I contacted all the new clients for the year to push their booking out and Craig contacted the current revisits he has to determine which ones can meet outside.

Finally time to sit down, put our feet up and eat the crusty bread and pate that’s past it’s sell by date in the fridge…… it was lovely and we survived!!

So all in all despite the shit this year has thrown at us I’ve had a bloody good year. I’ve loved having to stay home, loved getting things done around the house, loved learning my new career and genuinely loved writing these blogs. As I’ve said so many times, writing helps me understand what’s going on in my head and if one person can take something away from this the other will all have been worthwhile.

Those who follow know how hard some days have been and even today I’ve had another huge wobble but at the end of the day I will always focus on the positives. We are VERY lucky to have no one close badly affected but COVID yet. Those who we know that got it have all recovered quickly and are better now. I know that might not always be the case.

Life has been put on hold in so many ways. None of us could EVER have imagined what this year would be like as we sailed in to 2020 at midnight on the 31st last year.

Hugs are the thing I miss the most

So here’s to the New Year! We approach 2021 with a 2 vaccines 💉 in the hope that our lives might get back to some kind of normal and I guess I just have to figure out that my new normal is going to be……

Thanks to everyone who’s supported my ramblings for the last 270 days. It means a lot and keeps this mind of mine more sane than it would be without it. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
